Chartered in 1836, Wesleyan was the first college in the world to grant degrees to women. Every year since then, Wesleyan women have been making history. First for Women isn’t just a claim to fame — it’s a philosophy that separates our learning community from all others. We’re anchored in tradition and guided by an innovative spirit, and we take our role as a pioneer in women’s education seriously.
Wesleyan is regarded as one of the nation’s finest liberal arts colleges and is consistently recognized for academic excellence.
